I am so sorry I haven't posted or checked in lately but the past few weeks have been hell.
My cousin died of lung cancer 2 weeks ago after being given a clean bill of health, my SIL had emergency back surgery and my MIL has just been diagnosed with cancer as well.
In the midst of all this Finn is cutting his first 5 teeth all at once!
Everything seems like and feels like a blur and I haven't slept properly in weeks.
On another note, I have my anatomy scan on Thursday and will find out our little one's gender at our party on Saturday!
How is everyone doing?

Sorry for an awful few weeks. Pretty exciting you're so close to finding out gender, wohoo. I love that everyone (that plans on finding out) is finding out. Looks like you're also a day away from hitting the half way point, 20 weeks? Sweet!

I am so sorry that you have been going through all of that. Big hugs.
I have had my share of hard times lately too, but thankfully all is looking up now.
Great to see you around here again.

You have my deepest sympathies for your cousin. I hope they catch your MIL's cancer in time and your SIL heals quickly. Teething, oh the joys of teething. I hope it passes quickly and they just pop right out soon to lessen your son's pain Did you try freezing a damp wash rag and giving it to Finn? I did it with my three and it helps numb their gums and lessen their pain. Also, cold teething rings if he prefers those. I really hope things start looking up soon for you. I can't wait to hear which gender team you're on so please KUP!

Sounds like a rough couple of weeks Hope things get better soon. Good luck at your scan. Have you tried an amber teething necklace. My little Finn has one on and just notice tooth #8 poking thru, we had a lot of teething issued with the other teeth before the necklace but none now! Seems like it helps???

Thanks for the kind words. I hope things start looking up too!
I've tried a terthing and noisette necklace, frozen rags and teething rings. In Canada they also sell something called Camilia which did nothing. It could be because he has 5 cutting at once. Poor baby!
I will make sure to take pics and post afterwards!

When it rains, it pours sometimes

Good for you for looking at the bright side, though! Best wishes for an easy week and KUP with your scan, mama!

Oh man what a rough couple of weeks. So sorry for your loss and all your bad news. I too pray they caught your MIL's cancer very early and your SIL heals quickly. I know your gender reveal party will be be a bright spot in your family's life!

I am gearing up to take the next few weeks off of work to help my mom through her radiation treatments so if you need someone to talk to let me know!
